yespr (32033) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2007
50 cL bottle, thanks to Papsoe. Pours orange and with a diminished white head. Mild malty aroma. Flavour holds a dry malty malt flavour is a dry bitterness. Ends with a nice breadish note. Decent yet not thrilling.

Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2004
[Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen] A hazy orange beer with an OK off-white head. The aroma is weak, but what is there is flowery. The flavor is sweet flowery and very bitter, but the body is thin. A nice bitter, but a bit thin for my taste.

(Bottle 66 cl) Beautiful, clear amber golden with a small, off-white head. Nutty aroma. Light body, notes of burned caramel and nuts. Rather hoppy finish. A very straightforward and balanced Bitter. 040307

oh6gdx (20930) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2006
Bottled. Very dark amber colour, big beige head. Aroma is hops and caramel. Also lots of skunkyness. Flavour is skunked hops, grass and very earthy. Long grassy aftertaste. Not too exciting...

omhper (19972) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2006
Bottled. Amber colour, clear, rich head. Inviting honeyish flowery hop aroma. Dry with very light body and a wealth of aromatic resiny hops. Crisp mouthfeel. Despite it’s very low gravity it doesn’t feel thin. Medium bitterness. Pretty much the best beer you can get in Swedish supermarkets as beers above 3.5% aren’t sold there.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2007
Bottle, at Cardinal. Malty, toffeeish aroma with hops to balance it. The flavor is a bit more hoppy, but else it is the same malty and toffeeish thing. Medium body and a malty finish that could use more hops. And the pour was clear, golden with an off-white head. Quaffable one. (070623)
